Art and Design

Our art and design curriculum aims at inspiring, engaging and supporting children to develop their creativity to the best of their potential. They will be inspired by the creativity of others ranging from famous artists to local artists to our own school community, as well as being given the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones, experiment and invent. Children will be given time and space to think, to be peaceful and to allow themselves to be inspired. Children will be taught how important artistic creativity is to the success of the country in which we live. The curriculum has been deliberately designed for a repetition of the processes of sketching, painting, textiles and sculpture. These skills so that the children develop and build on previously taught skills. In addition, each long enquiry starts by revisiting drawing, allowing this to have a mixed media approach.

Art competitions and exhibitions are held regularly.

Children will have a love of art and feel confident to express themselves through creative processes.
